Hounslow Highways Annual Investment Programme

Since 1 January 2013, an investment of 96 million has been invested in the borough, which is the largest ever investment in the borough's highways infrastructure over such a short period.

This investment has resulted in Hounslow being ranked 2nd best borough in London for road condition - going from one of the worst performing in 32nd out of 33, to one of the best.

 

Here is what we have done so far in the Core Investment Period upgrade (2013-2017) on the borough's roads and streets:

  • Replaced 13,000 traffic signs to the highest visibility and reflectivity standards
  • 1,041 footpaths treated (resurfaced approx. 230km)
  • 1,164 carriageways treated (resurfacing of approx. 206km)
  • Approx. 30,000m2 of High Friction Surface (anti-skid treatment to roads) has been applied on the Network
  • Refurbishment of five major structures, including the iconic Augustus Road Bridge.
  • Upgraded 10 specialist sites as high priority strategic roads making them fit for purpose for the next 20 years, including Hatton Road and Green Lane

Please note that the above is indicative of Road Section Lengths (RSLs) and Footway Section Lengths (FSLs) and not whole roads.

Each road is divided into smaller sections called RSLs and FSLs to improve the quality of the inspection and construction process by making work areas more manageable.
